MUNSTER and Irish rugby legend Paul O’Connell met up for a day of training with Olympic boxing champion Katie Taylor recently and the results have been documented in a new video.

The You Tube video - called #whatdrivesyou - Paul and Katie - shows O’Connell and Taylor trading blows in the ring, before exchanging passes on the rugby pitch, accompanied by some up and coming boxers and rugby players.

The short film, which can be seen here, was uploaded by Toyota Ireland, who sponsor both Paul and Katie, and already has some 27,000 plus views on You Tube.

“At Toyota, we have always been driven by the pursuit of perfection,” explains the car manufacturer.

“That’s something we share with two of our most famous ambassadors, Paul O’Connell and Katie Taylor.”

Katie Taylor will fight in Limerick this Sunday, while Paul O’Connell is expected to be in the sqaud that lines-out against Scarlets on Friday night in Thomond Park.
